Today, Anna Pearl Rowell claimed her $110,000 winning Wild Card check from the Idaho Lottery and then retired from her service as the Office Manager for the Canyon County Assessor's Office.
Rowell became the third Wild Card jackpot winner from Idaho in the last four months when she matched all of her numbers and the Wild Card from the draw held on Saturday, November 3, 2007. Those winning numbers were 16, 17, 18, 24, 26 and the Wild Card was the Ace of Spades. She bought the winning ticket at Jacksons Food Store located at 2406 S. Montana in Caldwell so that she could enter the "Second Chance to Paradise" promotion to see In October 2002, Rowell won a Dodge Ram Quad-cab pick-up truck through the Lottery's "Bucks and Trucks" second chance scratch game promotion. In July 2004, Rowell hit lottery luck again when she won $15,000 playing as a contestant in the Lottery's 15 th Anniversary Game Show. And those are just Rowell's highest wins. Earlier in 2004 she won $1,500 on the 15 th Anniversary scratch ticket and in 2005 she won a Pac-Man video arcade through another second chance draw. With five big Lottery wins, retired, and no longer having a house payment, Rowell certainly is living the dream.

But five times?On Friday, Caldwell resident Anna Pearl Rowell claimed a $110,000 winning Wild Card check from the Idaho Lottery, a day after she retired from the Canyon County assessor's office, where she had worked for 33 years and two days.Rowell herself can't ascribe her winning streak to anything other than "dumb luck."Rowell's lucky streak is all the more remarkable if you consider other odds.For example, Rowell has one chance in 576,000 of being struck by lightning.And anyone who plays or doesn't play the lottery has one chance in 650,000 of dying in a terrorist attack while visiting a foreign country."Maybe it was my retirement present from up above," Rowell said.She won the Nov. 3 drawing - she considers three her lucky number - but had asked lottery officials to hold off until her official retirement.Her jackpot winnings paid off her Caldwell home and the rest went into the bank to deal with any tax implications from her winnings.She told her family Thursday about her latest win."It's more money than I have ever had in one lump.Most of the kids were here because I retired yesterday for the party," Rowell said."I had the kids sit down in the living room and I held up the funny little check from the lottery.They were all in shock.One said, 'you lucky little person.'"Rowell said she's a regular lottery player but doesn't spend a lot of money on tickets.She buys a $5 ticket good for two and a half weeks of drawings.She'll likely keep playing even after this latest win."I don't smoke and drink.We don't run around.The only thing we do is bowl and eat out," Rowell said."That's the extent of our excitement.
